I took FreeCodeCamp responsive web design certificate to improve my front end skills after udacity. The focus was on applying Visual Designs with a combination of typography, color theory, graphics, animation, page layout, and to deliver my message. To apply accessibility to include people with visual, auditory, mobility, or cognitive disabilities. Then make a responsive web design that works and looks great on all devices. The first project I took was a tribute page, over time it has changed from a basic design I did for Dr. Norman Borlaug to what it is currently. The person I choose for my tribute page is: Jarad Anthony Higgins. My reason was to highlight programs that support the younger generation battling addiction, anxiety and depression. To promote the younger generation to speak about their feelings openly.
I wanted the colors to reflect Juice Wrld posthumous album 'Legends Never Die'. For the website I included youtube iFrame linking to top songs from the album.Then I used spotify embed and blended them into the website. I decided to use only vanilla CSS, test my knowledge of flex and grid for the layout and to make it fully responsive on all devices. After finishing Advanced CSS and Sass course on Udemy I wanted to use basic animations to my website to make it interactive.
In this project I started to test my understanding of Grid and Flex layout.
I followed the freecodecamp user story:
- User Story #1: My tribute page should have an element with a corresponding id="main", which contains all other elements.
- User Story #2: I should see an element with a corresponding id="title", which contains a string (i.e. text) that describes the subject of the tribute page (e.g. "Dr. Norman Borlaug").
- User Story #3: I should see a div element with a corresponding id="img-div".
- User Story #4: Within the img-div element, I should see an img element with a corresponding id="image".
- User Story #5: Within the img-div element, I should see an element with a corresponding id="img-caption" that contains textual content describing the image shown in img-div.
- User Story #6: I should see an element with a corresponding id="tribute-info", which contains textual content describing the subject of the tribute page.
- User Story #7: I should see an element with a corresponding id="tribute-link", which links to an outside site that contains additional information about the subject of the tribute page. HINT: You must give your element an attribute of target and set it to _blank in order for your link to open in a new tab (i.e. target="_blank").
- User Story #8: The img element should responsively resize, relative to the width of its parent element, without exceeding its original size.
- User Story #9: The img element should be centered within its parent element.
Then decided on the best layout of the content and made a design in figma. Finally I scaffolded the HTML and started to style it then finished with adding SEO
